The soups are suitable for vegans and can be cooked to order from frozen or defrosted states for quick and convenient preparation in minutes.
Four varieties are offered: Spiced Winter Vegetable Soup, a blend of carrots, parsnips, onions and potatoes with hints of maple syrup, coconut, thyme and cinnamon; Parsnip Soup, featuring parsnips, potatoes and onions with hints of maple syrup; Butternut and Sage Soup, combining butternut squash, carrot, potatoes and sage; and Italian Style White Bean Soup, with haricot beans, onions and kale, accented with garlic, rosemary, paprika and fennel.
“We wanted to introduce a range of frozen soups that not only capture some amazing flavors, but are also simple to use as a time-saving, tasty option in busy kitchens,” said Stuart Smith, merchandising director at Sysco GB.
“The potential applications are almost endless,” he added. “For example, as an easy-to-deliver soup of the day that can be rotated, an in-room flexible dining option, or simply a cook-to-order resident meal. And because they are vegan, it provides an easy option for a variety of menu choices.”
Available in individual 275g pouches, the soups at priced at £1.42 per portion.
